The 25-year-old French soccer superstar Kylian Mbappe will be on the move this summer. According to multiple reports, including Le Parisien and ESPN. He’s reportedly agreed to join Real Madrid once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) ends at the end of the season.
Mbappé has been linked to a possible move to the Spanish giants over the last couple of years, but nothing ever unfolded as he remained in Paris. According to ESPN, Mbappe has not yet informed PSG or Real Madrid of his decision but is expected to make an announcement next week.

As per the French publication, Le Parisien, the star footballer is in talks with the Spanish club and a confirmation might come any time soon. If Mbappé decides to make a move to Real Madrid, then it will be a huge success for the Galacticos. As it would be on a free transfer. The 2018 World Cup winner had earlier quashed the rumours of joining the English club Liverpool.

Meanwhile, PSG is at the top of the points table with 14 wins in 20 games in the ongoing 2023-24 season.
In 2022 there are rumors of his departure for Madrid, but the French president phoned him and urged him to stay.
“I never imagined I’m gonna talk with the president about my future in my career, so it’s something crazy, really something crazy,” Mbappé said in an interview with the New York Times. He told me, ‘I want you to stay. I don’t want you to leave now. You are so important for the country.”
“My father received a call from someone at Real Madrid, inviting me to come to Spain for a training session over the holiday break,” Mbappé told The Players’ Tribune. “It was a shock because they actually told my father, ‘Zidane would like to see your son’.
